Teen Art Workshop
August 8, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$35.00
Are you 12 to 18 years old and looking for a unique art adventure close to home this summer? Well, the HY and artEAST have the perfect opportunity with a special one-day ceramics workshop at Blakely Hall. Only $35 and lunch is included!
As you’ve heard before, a picture says a thousand words and, creating a sculptural community clay tile quilt using your photo is a great way to let your true colors shine. Come explore the surface of clay by transferring and etching your photo and patterns to create tiles that will be stitched into a ‘quilted’ outdoor sculpture for the Issaquah Highlands community. Discover how to design your clay tile using colored slips, printing and carving to adorn your tiles and achieve realistic and textural results. This class will dissect what you know about portrait photography and ceramics to give you a whole new perspective!
*Participants are encouraged to come to class with designs they wish to share and apply to individual tiles. The tiles will be fired and turned into a sculptural quilt to debut at the I AM Art Exhibition Reception at Blakely Hall on Saturday, September 12th, 2015. Don’t miss your chance to contribute to this unique community sculpture and leave a lasting impression in your community. Space is limited and registration is required. Deadline: July 24th.

Students will need to provide a 300 dpi jpeg file close-up photograph of their face two weeks prior to the class. Instructions for photo up-loads will be given upon registration.
